Digital transformation is sweeping businesses - large and small. Old business models are going away. Consumer behavior is changing. The way we hire, train, and use resources is changing. All these changes are leading organizations towards an SAP S/4HANA-centric Intelligent Enterprise model. The Intelligent Enterprise leverages emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, internet of things, and analytics to enable the workforce to focus on higher value outcomes. With so many choices, guidance is critical for ensuring that every digital investment delivers the expected value.

The SAP Transformation Navigator provides that guidance and allows your company to choose the right mix of SAP platforms and solutions to help you transition towards the Intelligent Enterprise.
